Restaurant Review: Perch

 Here is an overdue post for Perch in Los Angeles. It's been over a year since we dined there but the place is very memorable. I had one of the best meals at Perch and you are in luck because I hear they are open since most of the restaurant seating is outdoors. They even have a rooftop bar, though I am not sure if this part is open. Here you get a 360 degree view of downtown LA. I imagine the view is breathtaking at night all lit up. When we visited, pre Covid, the place was packed. It was a young and lively crowd of Los Angelans wanting to be seen. We opted to sit at the indoor bar and have a couple of drinks before our meal. Large and lively crowds are not my thing. I remember the cocktails being good, though I don't recall which ones we had. The meal however, as I mentioned above, was indeed memorable. 

This is the view you will enjoy in their outdoor seating area, LA never looked so prettier. 

We started off with this generous piece of Pork Belly. The pork belly is served with coriander picked apples, frisee and maple sherry vinegar glaze. It was crisp on the outside and luscious on the inside, as pork belly should be. 

 Next, we tried the Wild Mushroom Risotto, which was earthy and creamy and delicious. We also shared the Bacon Mac and Cheese, which as you can see in the photo above, we gobbled up before snapping a pic. It was one of the best mac and cheeses I have had at a restaurant. Made with black truffle béchamel and bacon lardons. 

Chris' entrée was the Filet Mignon Au Poivre  served with a parsnip and potato puree, asparagus and his was topped with some crab, per the suggestion of our waitress. The steak was moist and tender and the asparagus perfectly charred. Now for the most memorable part, my entree, Little Bunny Frou Frou.

I ordered this well, because of the name. Little did I know this was gonna be something I would dream about later. In fact, I want some right now...badly. This is ravioli filled with rabbit meat and served with a sauce that is to die for. Heirloom carrots and a parsnip brioche crumble top it off. I am telling you this was so really really really good. I would like a to go box...right now, please. 

If you are in the LA or surrounding area and want to enjoy an amazing meal outdoors call for a reservation at Perch.
